Driven by the desire to stand in solidarity amongst and with our African American colleagues and a renewed commitment to anti-racist social work, doctoral students at the University of Pittsburgh School of Social Work formed the Anti-Racist Doctoral Program Student Committee (ARDPSC) in May 2020. Our committee is comprised of students who are personally committed to anti-racism in social work academia and who are prepared through their training, scholarship, service, and life experiences for this cultural moment.
The current committee members are:
- Laura Ellen Ashcraft
- Adrian J. Ballard
- Kess L. Ballentine
- Ana T. Flores
- Dashawna J. Fussell-Ware
- Kristen T. MacKenzie
- Laurenia C. Mangum
- Serwaa S. Omowale
- Christopher Thyberg
